Hurricane Katrina

This girl sums up my thoughts on Hurricane Katrina perfectly.

Yes, we couldn't stop the wind and the floods, but if troops hadn't been diverted to Iraq; if disaster funds hadn't been diverted to Iraq; if over 800,000 people in New Orleans weren't so dirt poor that, end-of-the-month checks spent, they couldn't afford to get out of town...

And the thing that makes me the angriest of all is hearing how people are being raped at the Superdome. WTF? Sick, sick, sick. I just honestly can't fathom how some people can be so disgusting. But I guess that goes without saying.

I just don't know what else to say.

edit: This squirrel says it the best ;) {contains swearing}
